A guide to wine glasses

The shape of a glass influences the bouquet and taste of alcoholic beverages. The first discovery was made while enjoying wine.

The same wine displayed completely differently characteristics when served in a variety of wine glasses. The differences were so great that experienced connoisseurs were made to believe that they tasted different wines. The grape variety is the key factor in determining the relationship between the fruit, acidity, tannin and alcohol.

The Sommelier Bordeaux Grand Cru is an ideal wine glass for highly tannic red wines of moderate acidity. The shape of the glass directs wine to the center of the tongue, creating a harmony of fruit, tannin and acidity.

The Sommelier Burgundy Grand Cru is perfect for red wines with high acidity and moderate tannin. The shape directs the wine to the tip of the tongue, highlighting the fruit and balancing the naturally high acidity.

The Sommelier Vintage Champagne Glass is designed to highlight the fine bouquet, richness and complexity on the palate.

The Sommelier Chablis Chardonnay glass is created for full bodied white wines with moderate acidity. The shape directs the wine to the center of the tongue, bringing all of the components into perfect harmony.

The Sommelier Rheingau glass is designed for light fruity white wines that are high in acidity. The shape guides the wine to the tip of the tongue, accentuating the fruit and de-emphasizing the naturally high acidity.
